    Stable position. Salary is decent, standard 2-3% raises per year.

    Long Hours Lots of rellocation required

    The new generation, both spouses work. Learn that this is not a trend and is the new normal. You must either adapt or you will continue to lose good people.

    Superintendent in Honolulu, HI

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Kiewit Corporation

    Pros

    Great business structure, very effective productive culture; it allows you to learn the construction contracting business the text book way. Also a very profitable company that maintains professional ethics.

    Cons

    Tough life style. Long hours and your desk moves to the job, not the other way around, so lots of moving is required. Tough to make a life outside of the company.

    Advice to Management

    It would help if management were to continue developing and improving the balance between life and work. It seems there is recognition of the need, but more still needs to be done if people are going to stay with the company for the long run

    I have been working at Kiewit Corporation full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great access to training and career opportunities. Projects are complex and exciting. Managers are loyal to the company. I enjoy the majority of the people I work with.

    Cons

    Hours are crazy and expected even if they attempt to preach work-life balance. Some people clearly work more and aren't compensated for the extra hours.

    Advice to Management

    You will keep losing people if you don't find a way to preach life outside of work.

    Read these reviews and start compensating the employees for the amount of time they spend on the job. All the cons in this are the same. No work life balance.
